Liverpool sign Ozan Kabak

Fans had been begging the club for a new signing since the autumn.

When Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez were ruled out for the season it seemed inevitable that a player would be signed as soon as the window opened.

Instead, the club decided to wait. All of the signals were that the Reds would wait until the summer to bring in their preferred targets.

Then Joel Matip was also sidelined for the season and the club were left with no option.
